by nsa surveillance. i think the report in "the washington post" showing that there were more than 2700 incidents in which the nsa broke and violated is going to get more press. democrats are already reacting negatively to it. we've seen patrick leahy on the senate judiciary saying that he's going to hold hearings. even nancy pelosi who has been supportive of the president here says she's quite troubled and regular critics like senator ron wyden have released a letter saying this is the only the tip of the iceberg. there's still a lot we don't know. >> harry, what are you hearing down there? is this something that has already got the far left up in arms or much to do about nothing? >> they voted to defund this program a month ago. i think you're going to have real issues when the congress gets back. there's been a lot of pushback. you can see the people that supported the president, kind of pulling back. this is going to be a big issue. if you you're looking for the obama scandal, as the republicans are, this is going to be a big issue. >> nsa? >> nsa. >> christine, what's your headline

new details about the activities of the nsa, the agency collected thousands of internet communications with no terror connections. the intent was to go far beyond what it had originally disclosed. we'll go deeper in that side of the story later in this newscast. the soldiers that killed 16 afghan civilians in a rampage last year faced more of his victims' families. the trial for sergeant bales has recessed for the day. there are 30 counts of murder, attempted murder and assault. allen schauffler is life for us, how likely is the jury to grant a possibility. you talk to others who know the military system, and they say simply no way. considering what he did. this man will get life in prison, period. they stopped hearing testimony for the day right now. we did hear from a couple of witnesses from afghanistan this morning. now we're hearing the other side, the defense's turn, and they're putting a human face on the monster the robert bales we've heard described by a whole string of prosecution witnesses. good time bobby is what his oldest brother named him today while he was on the stand.
is not a fan of big government, i share many of those worries. i'm asked constantly about the n.s.a. stuff. i don't know enough of what's going on. but i have this guttural reaction where, no, i don't want my data scooped up vs. the analytical counterterrorism side of me saying, i want their data scooped up. there is something to be had there, a conversation to be had there. i just say that, you know, when you have that conversation, you shouldn't let it -- and i don't think you guys do this, but some people i think now are defining the current threat environment and how things are evolving around the globe with the impetus to wrap this up because they want to declare it over and an end to it. s there's a danger that you go too far in your thinking in that and think you're just going to say it's all over with because i don't want to deal with it anymore. the bottom line is our enemy gets a vote. >> we covered a lot of ground. but there's obviously still a lot of ground we could cover. let me thank our two panelists very much.

peterson of lehigh university. welcome to all of you. i want to go right to pete williams on the nsa. pete, you heard the president lay out four changes that he wanted to make, reforming section 215 with new safeguards, greater transparency and also the creation of some kind of new independent body. your reaction to the president on the surveillance issue. >> right. what the president said is that he's willing to look at the issue of having an adversary before the foreign intelligence surveillance corps, one of the criticisms of it is that the only people who ever appear before these judges in secret are the government. nobody's there to argue against or say the government doesn't need this and shouldn't have it. the president has said he's willing to look at an adversary to represent in essence civil liberties interests. he didn't say he was committed to it. he said he was willing to consider it. apparently this is something the government is seriously considering doing. making more public information about how these programs work putting up a website to explain them and bringing in outsi

stories based on the national security agency documents leaked by n.s.a. contractor edward snowden vowed today to publish new revelations about britain's espionage system. because british police detained his companion, david miranda, at london's heathrow airport and questioned him for nine hours. greenwald implied he knew many secrets about british intelligence and said authorities would regret detaining his partner. a cbs news correspondent john miller who is a former assistant director of the f.b.i. is on the case for us. john, what do you make of this? >> well, one question was did the brits do this on their own or were they acting on behalf of the united states and the white house acknowledged today that they were given advance word that this stop was going to happen. in another way, bob, it almost doesn't matter. you have to understand the way that u.s. intelligence and british intelligence work together. particularly the n.s.a. and their counterpart in great britain, the g.c.h.q. it's almost seamless. they have a morning conference call. they divide up the tarring hes, they work on

the nsa, coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets, and saying it was signals intelligence? >> sure, first to fran's point it's totally true this is one of many and one piece of information in a broad collection that the u.s. intelligence community has engaged in. this meeting was significant according to officials and reports in both "the new york times" and lots of other outlets because it was where the vague discussion of inpending attack was discussed and if you look at the embassy closings around the world it matches the people on the call. so you can sort of understand why the u.s. government took such a broad approach. as for it being motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. some of them they take risks on. as far as some of the other reporters linking this to the nsa and know den and what have you, it's important to point out the programs disclosed by snowden are not related to this particular communication particularly intercepted. they are about collecting information, domestically and it's not really connected. so i think
were using you to either justify the nsa coverage of the nsa program or to kind of obscure human intelligence, assets and saying it was signals intelligence. >> sure. first to fran's point. it is true it is one of many threat streams and one piece of information in a broad mosaic of a collection that the u.s. intelligence community is engaged in on a regular basis but the meeting was significant according to officials and reports in the "new york times" mcclatchy and other outlets because it is where the vague discussion of impending attack was discussed. if you look at the embassy closings around this world it largely matches the people who were on the call according to to our reporting. you can understand why the u.s. government took a broad brush aproechl as for it being their motivations in taking the risk, i can't speak to that. i would say some communications they hold closely. some they take risk on. this seems to be a risk they didn't take as far as other reporters linking it to the nsa and snowden and what have you. it is important to point out the programs disclosed by
